THE RITZ, by Terrence McNally

FARCE -- Auditions:  March 5 - 6, 2017

Published by Samuel French 

When Gaetano Proclo, a hapless, middle-aged, overweight, very married man takes it on the lam from his mafioso brother-in-law, Carmine Vespucci, he ducks into "The Ritz," the last place anyone would look for him... unaware that it is a clandestine gay bathhouse! What he encounters there sets the scene for a hilarious, old-fashioned door- slamming farce, albeit with towel-clad chubby chasers, bumbling detectives, and Googie Gomez, an over-the-top would be Bette Midler looking for her big break...
